Man, all that stadium seating accommodating thousands... only for the panel turn out to be about 50-150 people. Ouch.

Especially considering how that's a fraction of the turn out at Hasbro toy reveal panels of the past several BotCons.

So, I love pretenders. I love that the shells are getting modern versions and uses, even if not based on the exact original source material. But I will buy every single one of them.

Legends slash looks cool. If she combines, Volcanicus will be the 3rd CoEd combiner in a year!! (as in male and females in 1 combined mode. RiD Ultra Bee and Galvatronus are the other 2)

Prime looks cool. I didn't really want to buy him, but he looks like he can be my definitive "G1" Prime, seeing as how every other one I have is G2, Japanese-more based, or combined.

I love dinobots, so all these images excite me. Volcanicus looks alright, though the name is killer, and the head, to quote a friend, is "Like Grimlock's head crossed with a demon" so I am down with that. Just the torso looks a bit... odd. Maybe slash will form chest armor. Or a bombass sword

It looks like Optimus takes advantage of the Power-Master gimmick; whereby Orion Pax folds up like Jinrai and merges with the trailer to become Optimus...definitely a buy ;). Oh, and I agree with everyone else about the whole Sludge being a deluxe thing, that's sooo messed up. On a side note, I have attached a couple spoiler links that show off more of the line-up-some you've seen others maybe not.

Sometimes they do that because it was cheaper to rent or fly everyone to. It also happens with WWE events even though it looks bad it does't mean anything really.

Slash is a fembot? (Fist pump) Yes! I always hoped if they made a female dinobot it'd be a raptor.

My only complaint is the fear of stickers. I hate stickers, and I see a few there. Hopefully Takara fixes that issue, if it actually is one when the final product hits the shelves.



Hopefully Hasbro lets US put the stickers on, because I love applying stickers. Always did as a kid.

Yes, that was announced today. I thought how did I miss that? But it turns out that Slash is indeed a lady. (Even though I always think of the guitarist from Guns n Roses)

... Combiner sized?

I'm personally wanting a Leader-class Scorponok. For many reasons...

Joking aside, Grimlock towered over sludge in their G1 beast modes, so it fits

I don't think she's part of Volcanicus at all, unfortunately. The back of her card just shows that she can carry around Prime Masters.

I don't think connectivity was shown for the likes of Groove back in Combiner Wars. I remember Shockwave's ability to connect to Onslaught's truck form was shown, but that's it.

I don't like the look of Sludge's robot mode, I hope it's Mis-transformed. The shoulder neck area just seems weird looking. I like all the rest for what they are, and you better believe my boys will be getting a set of dinobots.

I'm in for two sets myself, and the g2 and Diaclone sets. Wants me an official black torsoed Snarl. Blue Slag is cool too. Be fun if they do the concept g2 colors for some of these guys too.

I love seeing the dinobots, but I really want to see Terrorcons. Please Hasbro? You can't tease us like that and not share! :) I'm also with Chuck, I still need to grab skater-prime.
